Description
The current JRE consumer installer has a "Family" in the name, and this is confusing to customers.  Whether or not it is a consumer or static install should be under-the-cover.  

Also, we currently only show "6", when we really should be showing "6uX"....X being the update version.  

Both of these issues should be fixed as part of this bug.  The add/remove programs should indicate exactly what update release, and should not show "family".

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

The fix is to change the product name to "Java(TM) 6 Update 10".
